Our ACT offices move to remote servicing

Following the latest lockdown announcements in the ACT, our Belconnen, Braddon, Gungahlin and Tuggeranong-Greenway offices will close at 4pm today and change to phone and online servicing from Friday 13 August until Friday 17 September, inclusive.

Our teams, including our Health and Wellbeing professionals, are available to support clients during this unsettling time. Lockdowns and restrictions can be stressful and talking to one of our dedicated Health and Wellbeing team members can help you to find ways to support your mental health.

Please call your local office, or 1300 13 23 63 to arrange a time.
